MIOX Corporation’s VAULT Receives NSF/ANSI Standard 61 CertificationDecember 02 2010
Certification represents company’s commitment to ensuring drinking water safety
Albuquerque, NM – December 2, 2010 – MIOX Corporation, a leader in safe water disinfection, has received NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certification for its VAULT™ line of on-site hypochlorite and mixed oxidant generators, used globally for effective, affordable water disinfection. With this certification, MIOX has met the NSF/ANSI 61 Standard for its newest product line, representing the company’s commitment to ensuring drinking water safety. To achieve certification, the equipment was passed through a rigorous seven-step process, overseen by the NSF Drinking Water Additives Joint Committee.
NSF/ANSI Standard 61 was published in 1988 to establish minimum requirements for the control of potential adverse human health effects from products that contact drinking water. This includes criteria for testing and evaluating products to ensure they do not leach potentially harmful contaminants into the water. These contaminants include those regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and Health Canada, as well as any other non-regulated compounds that may be of concern.
The NSF/ANSI 61-certified VAULT™ on-site generator has been designed for high efficiency, low lifecycle cost, durability and reliability and is virtually maintenance free. With superior flow control, an air-cooled power supply, corrosion-resistant cabinet and a new touch screen display, the VAULT offers unprecedented functionality and easy interface. The VAULT, like all MIOX clean technologies, treats water using only salt, water and power to generate a dilute disinfectant on site. Creating disinfectant on site is safe, cost effective and environmentally responsible, cutting back transportation requirements, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption, and eliminating the storage and disposal of chemical containers.
